Granite Noir: Mysteries of Life and Death

How do we die and what happens when we do? World-renowned forensic anthropologist Professor Dame Sue Black takes us on a journey of revelation from skull to feet and shows that each part of us has a tale to tell. Professor Andrew Doig’s This Mortal Coil is an entertaining work that looks at how death has changed over the past 10,000 years, and what this can tell us about the way different societies have lived.
